. they were all compromisers. and then i read your book earlier this year, bob woodward, about president obama and this stalemate over trying to find some kind of way to keep the government running here in washington. it occurs to me that what seems to be lacking these days is this ability of modern politicians to compromise. i sometimes wonder if they-- if they've forgotten how to do it. >> one theme is the president, no matter who is president, is the chief strategist. they set the tone. they say this is how we're going to do things and fix things. in the case of obama and the first term, and the economic issues, he didn't fix them. and he didn't find a way to work his will. and you see lincoln and jefferson and eisenhower did. now, we're catching obama midstream. he still has another four years. the interesting question is going to be how he takes victory. we know how romney has taken defeat-- not very well. and he is grousing. what has obama learned? how is he going to say, "we're going to fix some of these things, not just play politics? >> schieffer: well, doris, you lived with lincoln f

. barack obama's speech in 2004, makes him a national figure, and four years later, without that speech he is not a candidate for the presidency to lincoln gives a dazzling speak in new york. it is a beautiful testament to the quality of lincoln's mind, the research he does, the logical arguments. but when he ran for the senate -- when barack obama gave the speech in 2004 he was running for the senate in illinois and he won. abraham lincoln ran for the senate in illinois and he lost. you want to think about abraham lincoln in 1860, think about barack obama running for the presidency in 2008 if he had lost the illinois senate election, not if he had won it. that's the level of national security we're talking about here. >> harvard business school professor profiles historic and
only, no, they are cutting back because with what they fear from president obama getting his way in terms of higher taxes. in determines of higher dividend taxes and higher taxes on just about every piece of the economy and i tell yo don't believe me, go out there and talk to them. they started cutting back way before this last week. >> i want to take this point. >> and this is the problem, the fiscal cliff is really bad, but the solution offered by president obama of massive taxes is not that good. >> julian, what do you make of that this this is just a pandora's box, and the beginning. the fiscal cliff, could have a short-term impact, but ultimately the trend of higher taxes that charlie's point, is what businesses are really afraid of? >> i totally disagree with that and i think the surveys of businesses have shown that to be wrong and i talked to-- >> whoa, whoa, what survey. >> can i finish the point, charlie. >> you just said survey. >> we'll come back. >> i think that businesses are concerned mostly about whether consumers are going to spend or the not. that's the concern
obama and republicans in congress will fail to reach an accord because they feel -- they fear that the resulting combination of spending cuts and tax increases could prompt another recession, which their states can ill afford. let's go to houston, texas and hear from barry. caller: high. host: am i:should sit seven role in the negotiations? we are hearing about how republicans and president obama are negotiating. caller: i think the democrats should have some form of a democratic rip -- rip at the table. i believe everybody should be involved. it has gone on too far like this without points being made. our domestic investment needs to be saved. they need to cut the military spending down and preserve the safety nets. raise the taxes up and let's be done with it. i do not understand what the problem is. host: here is a comment coming from facebook. you can join the conversation on facebook by looking for c-span and weighing in there. let's go to the next call, jason from new jersey on the independent line. caller: good morning. thank you for c-span. i think it is is important t
speaker boehner saying that he wants obama care on the table in the fiscal cliff negotiations in reality will that be on the table, obama care in. >> you know, this is a a genius move by republicans. they wanted to repeal obama care. they would have done it had mitt romney been elected and they can't do that. boehner has said repealing it entirely is a moot issue. but getting some concessions is probably the way to do it. in part because there are democrats who agree that changes should be made and even the president has said that it's not a perfect law. do the math. deduct it a little bit or make changes to republican care. you've got the workings of a grand compromise and everyone can walk away a winner by saying, look, we changed obama care, we're going to pay down the debt. who loses in that situation? certainly on the fringes people would say it's a bad deal but pretty much both parties could walk away and say we compromised and we fixed it. >> you want to write that up and send it up to the hill there? the other hot topic on "meet the press," the gaubenghazi attack t killed the amb

obama chooses to do? >> when she comes over, if she does, there will be a lot of questions asked of her about this event and others. but i do not believe the video is the cause when 14, september, secretary clinton told the families we're going to put in jail the man who made this video she should have said i'm sorry we left the consulate open and it became a death trap. i'm sorry we couldn't help your family for over seven hours. i don't believe the video is the reason for this, i don't believe it was ever the reason for this. that was a political story. not an intel story and we'll hold people accountable for a major national security breakdown three weeks before the election. that is our job. >> senator durbin, you were shaking your head there. >> if this was an nfl game, they would be criticized for piling on. she got the report from the intelligence committee and reported it to the public. just exactly what we expect her to do. they have decided not to include the al qaeda reference so we wouldn't compromise your sources in benghazi and libya and now we have the committees of juris
barack obama articulate this. i think it's sound analysis. the question is, what message is the israeli government and support sending when it makes choices in hamas pointing to many victories and leaves abbas humiliated as feckless and failed. here is the lesson, as far as i can tell. if you recognize israel, if you are committed to it, if you fire rockets into the heart of israel, if you kidnap their soldiers, then they will negotiate and adjust their policies. how perverse is that? everyone i have talked to sees this disparity. hamas political leader explicitly cited the sorry situation on wednesday. >> abbas whom the world welcomed gave this opportune toy israel and the national community. what did they do? they made him fail. >> allowing it to continue and take concrete steps in the west bank, stopping settlement growth, they are turning a blind eye and turning a blind eye while unarmed people are imprisoned, tear gassed away from the eyes of the american cameras. we, in the u.s., are creating the conditions of terrorism bring strategic benefits while the path of non-violence leads

. it is about 3.5 years of negotiations between the obama white house and the republicans in congress and the democrats. how they essentially tried to bring the federal government's financial house to some kind of order. the answer is they failed. we have a federal government whose financial house is in total disorder, total disarray. it is a historic problem. to try to put it in english, we have a trillion dollars of iou outstanding in the world. the negotiations, they agreed to raise what they call the debt ceiling, so the government can borrow a couple more trillion dollars. we are going to run it run out of that borrowing authority january or february of next year. they're going to have to go back and authorized congress for more trillions of dollars of borrowing. the republicans and lots of people in congress don't want to authorize that. so there is going to be a bloody negotiation, unless they can work a deal. in a sense, this is a book about the past, but it's about the present. it is about where we are going and what the country's future is. if you think about it i would argu
that stop so we can turn the country around and began to be a starter country again. we know that the obama administration over the course of the term has imposed 400 regulations that impose more than $100 million of costs annually on small businesses. the small business administration has said that there are so many regulatory burdens on small business that it cost them $10,000 per employee. those are the kinds of things that we want to stop right now so we can see more startup and jobs created. >> is one thing to ope for freezing regulations. but i guess we had hoped for "a-team" canaday. if you don't know these regulations, you could be in big trouble. let's say that you stop adding to the regulations. that alone has prompted the obama administration say, well, republicans don't want t protect us. how are you going to answer the predictable criticism that you're not looking out for folks, you are looking out for business interests? >> well, we are. we are saying in health emergency, of course. any sensible policymaker would say you have to be able to address those. but right now, the pen

obama took his daughter shopping today supporting a local book store and asking americans to do the same. meanwhile savvy shoppers are using every tool at their disposal to find discounts. reports show online sales were up more than 20% on black friday. >> it's easier and it's better, away from a lot of crowd of people. >> reporter: so far, shoppers appear to be in the mood, to buy, if the price is right. and heading into cyber monday, retail analysts say that sales are expected to jump 12% over last year, with americans spending $96 billion on that day alone. kate? >> michelle franzen tonight thank you. >>> overseas, tensions are rising in cairo and across egypt, days after that country's new president once hailed as a hero and reformer made a huge power grab that has some labeling him egypt's new pharaoh. tonight supporters and opponents of mohamed morsi are calling for mass demonstrations. nbc's jim maceda is high above cairo's tahrir square. jim, good evening. >> reporter: hi, kate. well, of course, tahrir square behind me was ground zero for egypt's 2011 uprising, but lately it's ha
and president obama had 200-- >> 250,000 as everyone and we were talking to small business owners on the show saying that $250,000 that's the small business owners not the rich at 250,000, employing a number of employees so we'll see. >> alisyn: more on that later. yoeigh in and we have a lot to tell you about overseas, the muslim brotherhood calling for massive protests and president morsi and the recent power gr grab. all right. as you can see, violent clashes and police and protesters continued overnight. the anti-morsi demonstration irresponsibility, they called, and topple the regime so they can take over power and some say the power grab was nothing short of a dictator. thousands are camped out in tahrir square calling for morsi to renounce. and stepping down from at chairman of the homeland security commission, could mean less money, and congressman king ensured that the city received more for counterterrorism. even though he will not have the top spot, he'll work with the new chair to continue to secure that. take a look at this, this is an 80-foot yacht burning off the miami coast. t
with president obama's presidency and that's where you're seeing the temper t tantrum. the anger and the vitriol against her seems incon grew is with what she actually did in an article about rice's potential to succeed clinton, he wrote while news came hour behalf she touched down in the region, the sequence of events is the vivid reminder of the statute clinton has gained in the job. she's been obama's go-to gal in any crisis. she's been given international praise for much of her work over the last four years but with her departure looming how much will they have replacing her and what will that transition look like? >> i think it will be a difficult transition. you have so many dirchltd things going on. i don't think it's possible to fill hillary clinton's shoes. i don't think there's anyone in the current administration who can match her. i think what barack obama is doing is trying to find somebody who matches his philosophy and that right now is susan rise. >> and there's no chance that hillary clinton will stay on, right? she need as break. >> she need as break. there's something that mig
agenda. it can't be just being against the democrats and against harry reid and against obama. you have to be for things. we have to give them the contract with america that we gave them some years ago. we have to give them something to be for. young women, i don't think anybody like me i can state my position on abortion, but to -- other than that, leave the issue alone. when we're in the kind of economic situation and frankly national security situation we're? >> chris: you would say freedom of choice? >> i would allow people to have those opinions and respect those opinions. i'm proud of my pro-life position and record but if someone disagrees with me, i respect your views. >> chris: nor -- senator mccain. thank you for being here today. >> 'tis the season to shop and spend. will the coming fiscal cliff put a damper on consumers and investments? 4g lte is the fastest. so, which supeast 4g lte service would yochoose, based on this chart ? don't rush into it, i'm not looking for the fastest answer. obviously verizon. okay, i have a different chart. going that way, does that make a diff
, better prices we get and better than obama care. >> but john, i am curious what you think about they go out and search around. and it is it it is 100 percent. and there is no reason. and thyself guys need to have pencil and ledger system in the computer world. they need to be transparent. it is complications . and let me and you and that is it a version of health care over seas. you think we can fix the problems we have here in this country? >> it might be. this is the greatt country in the world. you hope you g health care on your door step. it costs every american $8000 a year. that is two can half more than other industrialized nations. doubles pay double what everybody else pays for drugs. lower the health care costs. but travel, people don't want to travel away from their family it is it heartbreaking. >> at the same time a major american company. krogre for example. it is cheaper if you go to the state next door. but they are paying for the employees. >> and people will drive to the state next door to buy a car or booze but not get a hip replace tomit save 20,000. of course they w
less that president obama promised once more to develop the energy sources of the future. republican or democrat decides to develop energy projects, taxpayers had better watch out. governments get in the business of picking winners and losers, which leads to cronyism and wasted taxpayer dollars. this is the question of industrial policy. whether government should support business ventures and new technology that are unable to secure private hunting, government appears to be worse than private market in the records that we have over the past five years. in california in may, mitt romney said, quote, the president doesn't understand when you invest like that in one solar energy company makes it harder for solar technology generally because the scores from the ranch partners in the field suddenly lost their opportunity to get capital. who wants to put money into a solar company when the government puts half a billion into one of its choice? excellent question. i wrote this book because were not just spending half a billion. we are spending $12 billion year-to-date electricity more expen
and they have just 37 days i believe it is now. there you can see. it's a daunting task if president obama and congress fail to reach a tax deal because that will mean huge tax increases and spending cuts would automatically kick in january 1st. today several key republicans backed away from a pledge banning tax hikes including senator lindsey graham and congressman peter king. are we inching closer to some potential compromise. athena joan has been following the fiscal cliff negotiations. >> martin, with congress returning this weekend, not much public evidence of any real progress on a deal the avoid the fiscal cliff. folks here in washington are wondering if this week will prove a turning point for republicans and democrats. members of congress expressed optimism sunday about the prospects for reaching a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff. a series of tax increases and spending cuts next year that could do serious damage to the economy. they also sounded warnings. >> we can and must get an agreement. otherwise i think first of all the markets are going to start reacting. >> it's not a done
